South Korea is looking to build a hybrid ‘frankenmissile’ able to destroy North Korea’s underground nuclear testing grounds and hidden military bases.

The new type of missile would be able to reach any point in North Korea, and capable of carrying up to two tons of warheads, according to a military source.

This follows Tuesday’s decision by the Trump administration to agree to South Korea’s request to remove restrictions on missiles, which dictated a 500kg limit on warheads.

The weapons are called ‘frankenmissiles’ as they are hybrids of two existing types of ballistic missiles.

This shift by South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who took office four months ago, shows how seriously the country is taking both the threat from North Korea, and its alliance with the United States.

‘The measure would dramatically boost South Korea’s retaliation capability against North Korea,’ said Professor Kwon Yong Soo at Korea National Defense University told Straits Times.

‘With a one-ton warhead ballistic missile, South Korea could target almost all of North Korea’s underground facilities.’

Earlier today, Seoul’s Defense Ministry announced that the U.S. military will be adding another four missile launchers to the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense [THAAD] system in South Korea on Thursday to better cope with North Korean threats.
